    Wir hatten eine tolle Tour mit Grete bei schaurig nass kaltem Wetter. Das hat der Stimmung aber keinen Abbruch getan. Wir fanden die Aufmachung wirklich klasse und die Führung war äußerst interessant. Neben verstörenden Details des damaligen Henkersleben gab es ebenfalls viel über die Stadt Heidelberg zu hören. Aus unserer Sicht ein toller Mix.

    Superinteressant und sehr informativ. Man hat sich wirklich in die grausige Zeit zurückversetzt gefühlt. Clara, unsere Henkerstochter, hat sehr uns überzeugend und mit echter Begeisterung in die alte Zeit mitgenommen und die Tour zu einem besonderen Erlebnis gemacht! Vielen Dank und klare Empfehlung!

    Sehr gutes Format, die Darstellerin der Grete ( und Führerin) war hervorragend! Lebendig, anschaulich, Verknüpfung von Persönlichkeit und Geschichtswissen war wirklich gelungen. Superidee. Habe als Heidelbergerin noch etliches dazugelernt. Kann die Tour nur empfehlen, macht Spass!
